Project Name

Unified Communications and Network Renewal Project
  • The proposed implementation strategy is to improve four complementary communication infrastructure components over five years. The four components include a unified communications system, upgrading the Internet Protocol (IP) Network, upgrading the cable plant, and upgrading equipment rooms in various facilities (Facilities Upgrade). The unified communications component replaces the outdated campus telephones and voicemail systems. Upgrading the IP Network involves replacing outdated internet protocol equipment across the entire network system. Upgrading the cable plant replaces old horizontal and vertical cabling for 41 campus buildings. The facilities upgrade involves constructing or renovating equipment rooms on an as needed basis to support updated communications and data equipment.


  • Space allocation, architectural design and construction activities are underway for the addition and expansion of data rooms to house technology upgrades in designated campus buildings. Wiring and equipment upgrades are phased for completion building by building. As of July, 2014, 143 buildings have been completed and put on-line out of the approximate 178 buildings on the target list. The target list has increased from 145 buildings. Approximately 84% of active campus services have migrated. The project is scheduled for completion in Fall 2016.
